Performed in our office or with at-home whitening trays, teeth whitening can provide the smile makeover results you are looking for.
Yellow teeth may cause embarrassment and reduce our self-confidence and self-esteem. Several factors are responsible for the yellow colour of our teeth. As we age the natural yellow colouration of the outer dentin layer is exposed. Dietary habits can also contribute to discolouration, stains, and yellowish colour. For instance, beverages such as coffee and tea, tobacco, and some colour imparting substances like antibiotics produce yellow colouring. If the colour of your teeth tends to vary, this condition may be due to discoloration and stains.
Laser Teeth Whitening is a cosmetic dental procedure performed at Today’s Family Dentistry. Laser teeth whitening has become one of the most popular options for tooth bleaching, because it’s very effective and produces immediate results.
Laser teeth whitening is usually done in a single visit. The laser whitening starts with a clean up of your teeth, followed by the application of a special teeth-whitening gel to your teeth. This whitening gel contains stronger bleaching agents compared to the gel used in over-the-counter tooth bleaching products, which ensures better results. After the whitening gel has been applied, a special laser light is used to facilitate better gel penetration through the teeth enamel. The teeth whitening procedure usually last about an hour and the results can be seen immediately thereafter.
